    You just can't beat that price for a product this reliable! I own a pair of 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, and now a pair of these 8GB cards. I have taken literally tens of thousands of photos with the older cards and they are all still going strong.

    The only complaint I can think of is Download Speeds from card to computer...but this is not necessarily the fault of the card.

    Normally works fine but one time the memory card locked up (it caused my camera to give an error message and would not let me take any more pictures). This happened when I took a bunch of pictures in sequence. Fortunately the pictures already on the card were o.k. and I was able to download them. After I reformatted the card it started working again just fine. Maybe it was just a fluke but if you get this card you should definitely carry a back-up.

    I have a different memory card from another manufacturer and this has never happened with my other card. (I use a canon 20D with this card).

    Comments about Kingston 8GB Compact Flash Memory Card:

    It was quite difficult in comparison to most cards to find the read and write speed of this card. In my D200 this card will hold nearly 500 raw files. It is very usable in most situations. I can not recommend the use of this card for doing time lapse photography with shots taken in quick succession. The camera's buffer is adaquate to do at least up to 5 shots in quick succession. I tested this per a bracketing setup.

          Comments about Kingston 8GB Compact Flash Memory Card:

          I use this an other Kingston cards in Olympus E520 and E600 cameras. In older cameras without video I don't need the latest, fastest class of card, so Kingston offers a great choice for me and my budget. I've found Kingston memory products of all types (SD cards and RAM as well) to work as well for me as more expensive brands.I'm a working photographer on a tight budget, so reliable performance at a low price is important for me.Things that are great about it:Affordable yet capable performance.Never had a problem with other Kingston CF cards I own in 5 years of use of and over 75K captures.Things that are not so great:Apparently Kingston no longer packages plastic cases with CF cards.

                  I purchsed this inexpenive card baed on the experince I had with Kingstone 4 GB i have been using for the last god knows how long.
                  They are very durable and never failed on me.
                  I use them for photo (not video) so don't need high speed, and don't really do high burst shoots. lower capacities are better in my mind. If a card fails, you don't loose all of your shots.

                        Got it as replacement for very old card I had in my camera. So far so good.

                        Took a bit longer than expected to ship since package contained 3rd party catalog.

                          I would rather carry several smaller 8GB cards than one 64GB. I have seen a larger card fail and the photographer lost all the images he had shot. Not one of these have failed on me even in the snow.

                              I have been using Kingston cards for years and have never had any problems with them. They are always cheaper in price then other brands and they work perfect with the type of photography that I do.
